    No way the 1983 Sixers lose to San Antonio, period. Doc and Toney would be hitting all their outside shots. Malone would grab every missed shot and dish off to Cheeks for an easy assist. Ginobili would flop like a fish to no avail. That leaves Parker and Toney trying to force shots in the fourth quarter against a fresh off the bench Bobby Jones. It ain't happening. Blow up the computer if it said Spurs in 5.

  2. Radbradlee Says:

    Oops. I meant Parker and Duncan. Too much coffee

  3. Sherman Says:

    Not sure how you have Robert "Big Shot Rob" Horry being a virtual nonfactor against his former Laker teammates (I know Fish and Kobe are the only holdovers). Horry's clutch shooting would be good for at least a game all on his own, and I think Big 3 of Duncan, Ginobili, and Parker would force a Game 7. I'm okay with the Lakers winning the series because of the weapons they had and the defense they played, but it would be no walk in the park.

  4. Nick Says:

    Oh man.... '92 Bulls vs '09 LA

  5. Jason J Says:

    '92 Bulls with the clean sweep of the '91 Bulls... Not bad considering they didn't have home court advantage... Or did they?

  6. Travis Says:

    The '92 Bulls better sweep the '09 Lakers or this whole thing, which started out sounding like such a fun idea, is a waste of time.

  7. Travis Says:

    And btw, why did the '91 Jordan play so inferior to the '92 Jordan? Doesn't make much sense. I'm starting to wonder at that site's sim engine.

  8. Nick Says:

    Yeah, its funny how when both Bulls teams faced each other one team swept the other.
